Active directory driver unable to set DNBinary type attributes

The active directory shim fails to update the DNBinary type attributes in active directory.
However the attribute can be updated in active directory successfully through ldif scripts.

For example : Active directory msRTCSIP-UserPolicy attribute that is a part of the MS Office Communicator 2007 schema.


The issue is due to a bug in the base64 encode/decode functions.
